Have you seen my nuts?

My soap nuts that is. I'm always looking for "safe" detergents for the family, something biodegradable, phosphate free and with as little chemicals as possible. In Malaysia, that's near impossible. There are options, but you pay a hefty premium for being a fusspot mom. A bag of "green" detergent could easily set you back a couple of hundred ringgit a month. That's not an option for most families. 

When I saw these soap nuts at Justlife, I thought why not give it a try. It's completely natural, sans preservatives and chemicals, biodegradable, fragrance-free and most importantly, economical. A box cost less than RM50 and will last me at least 3 months. It even comes with two cotton pouches to put the soap nuts in to throw in the wash. I've tried it a couple of times with the kids' clothes and it cleans just as well as ordinary detergent. I'm sold!
